Sadly as our Rumbling Tummies Report reveals we know we need to do more… 

Every day there are people in our community dealing with the anguish and despair of not knowing where the next meal will come from for themselves and their families.

Foodbank’s research reveals the sacrifices some parents are making to provide food for their kids. Many go without meals. Some go without food for a whole day, and still too many children continue to be food insecure in our communities.

A $25 donation can provide 150 meals to families suffering from food insecurity.

‘I was embarrassed of my situation and too ashamed to ask for help, but I needed to do something for my family as I didn’t want to see my children go without.’ Kim.

Apart from seeking money to support their family, parents may also protect their children from food insecurity by finding other ways to ensure their children have access to food. Almost half of parents have cut down on the size of the family’s meals to make the food last longer. Additionally, parents may take their children to a family member’s house for a meal, seek food assistance from a charity or have their children go to friend’s house for a meal.

This is why we need your help.

Together with Foodbank, you can make a difference this Winter by giving a gift to feed hungry families like Kim’s.

  • A donation of $50 provides 300 meals.
  • A donation of $75 provides 450 meals.
  • A donation of $100 provides 600 meals.

‘Thank you from the bottom of my heart, as without your support I don’t know where we would be.’ Kim, to all donors.

Your support is vital in Foodbank’s efforts to improve the lives of families doing it tough this Winter.

On behalf of those who benefit from your generosity thanks.
